Waste collection may be delayed
Trash collection over the weekend may be delayed by a day, the works and engineering department warned today.
A spokesman for the department’s Waste Management Section advised residents who were expecting to have their garbage collected on Saturday due to the holiday to prepare to put it out early on Sunday morning instead.
Recycling in the East End will also be collected on Saturday.
Those who normally have their waste collected on Thursdays and Fridays were at first advised that their trash would be collected on Saturday.
The department spokesman reminded the public to place their garbage and recyclables out for collection on their designated days only.
He added: “The Department apologises for any inconvenience and asks the public for their patience and to secure all uncollected garbage in a lidded bin until their next scheduled collection day.”
